Evaluating Temperature Regulation by Field-Active Ectotherms: The Fallacy of the Inappropriate Question
TLDR
A sample analysis of the thermal biology of three Anolis lizards in Puerto Rico demonstrates the utility of the new protocol and its superiority to previous methods of evaluating temperature regulation. Expand
Integrating Thermal Physiology and Ecology of Ectotherms: A Discussion of Approaches
synopsis. An understanding of interactions between the thermal physiology and ecology of ectotherms remains elusive, partly because information on the relative performance of whole-animalExpand
The Relative Importance of Behavioral and Physiological Adjustments Controlling Body Temperature in Terrestrial Ectotherms
TLDR
A series of simple heat-transfer models is derived to examine a large number of behavioral and physiological mechanisms that are used by terrestrial ectotherms to control body temperature (Tb) and reaffirm two generalizations. Expand
The Thermal Dependence of Locomotion, Tongue Flicking, Digestion, and Oxygen Consumption in the Wandering Garter Snake
TLDR
FieldTb data indicate that all functions would be near maximum levels during the day but would be significantly reduced at night, and concludes that no single Tb is best for the ecological tasks of prey capture, predator avoidance, and energy conservation. Expand
Condition indices for conservation: new uses for evolving tools.
TLDR
The application of condition indices (CI) for conservation studies is reviewed and measures that quantify fat reserves are focused on, known to be critical for energetically challenging activities such as migration, reproduction and survival during periods of scarcity. Expand
EFFECTS OF OPERATING FREQUENCY AND TEMPERATURE ON MECHANICAL POWER OUTPUT FROM MOTH FLIGHT MUSCLE
TLDR
In the tobacco hawkmoth there is a good correspondence between the conditions of temperature and cycle frequency that produce maximal mechanical power output in the muscle preparation and the thoracic temperature and wing beat frequency observed during hovering flight. Expand
Body Size and Limits to the Daily Range of Body Temperature in Terrestrial Ectotherms
TLDR
A nonequilibrium heat-transfer model is used to calculate the extreme range of body temperatures available to ectotherms of different masses and shows how much higher Tb could be than Ta for an animal exposed to high solar radiation and to low wind speed. Expand
Mechanisms for Data Quality and Validation in Citizen Science
TLDR
A framework of 18 mechanisms commonly employed by PPSR projects for ensuring data quality is created, based on direct experience of the authors and a review of the survey data, noting two categories of sources of error and three potential intervention points which can be used to guide project design. Expand
Subclinical pulmonary function defects following autologous and allogeneic bone marrow transplantation: relationship to total body irradiation and graft-versus-host disease.
TLDR
Pulmonary function results pre- and post-transplant, to a maximum of 4 years, were analyzed in 98 patients with haematological disorders undergoing allogeneic or autologous bone marrow transplantation and there was no significant difference in pulmonary function abnormalities between autograft and allograft recipients.
